I don’t drink that often but when I do, I now try to drink a glass of water in between my wine.

I’ve noticed that since having surgery that my alcohol tolerance levels have definitely decreased. Apart from me getting older haha, I think this is due to an increased stoma output (common with alcohol) which leaves me a bit dehydrated. The next day I feel just terrible. I don’t drink that often but when I do, I now try to drink a glass of water in between my wine. This has helped considerably.
